GoLocal LIVE: "Senator Leo Raptakis appeared on GoLocal LIVE where he talked to the upcoming Senate vote on the PawSox legislation, along with his re-introduction of a bill to put the question of a line item veto on the ballot on Friday.
“I have introduced this bill several times, only to see the measure fail, but I will continue to press the issue and advocate for the need of this executive power for our current and future governors,” said Senator Raptakis. 'The voters should decide whether or not they want their governor to be able to go through the budget with a fine-toothed comb or have the option of only either rubberstamping or completely vetoing the entire budget. This legislation is about having proper checks and balances within our state government, and I believe it is necessary to move our state forward.' "
